I make these every year for Halloween. If you like caramel and black licorice, you will love them.
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups light karo syrup
Cook and stir constantly in a heavy pan until hard ball stage. Remove from heat and add:
3/4 tsp. Anise Oil (from pharmacy)
1/2 tsp. black past food coloring
Pour into a buttered 9x13 dish and cool. Cut into squares and wrap in wax paper.
